I've seen some help with magnesium when accompanied with other supplements in relation to my anxiety relief. what I most like about it is the fact that it helps with my restless leg syndrome which drives me insane when I'm anxious or stressed. also loosens up my bowels if I take too much. overall it works and its magnesium oxide w

I've been told by a medic that so long as you have stomach acid, Mag Oxide is all that's needed and is our natural source of the stuff anyway (stream and spring water). Citrate and other forms are only needed if you are permanently on Zantac or anti-acids, since Mag Oxide won't get absorbed. They're also needed in fairly enourmous amounts compared to Mag Oxide, to get the same amount of magnesium. If the medic's right, then they are a waste of money for most of us.

Does nothing for anxiety or helping sleep. BUT it's great for bowel regularity and relieving constipation. Helps those with chronic constipation/ IBS-C.

I take Magnesium caps which has magnesium oxide, aspartate, taurinate, citrate, and alpha-ketoglutarate all in one cap. Saves the time and money in trying to figure out which form is better.

In my research I found that Magnesium needs to be highly absorbable for best results. I had incredible results with Magnesium, Vitamin D3, chamomile tea and an herbal formula called Calm and Relaxed. I have been axiety free for years now, and I think Magnesium helped greatly. What I did was do a complete anxiety healing package this herbal medicine company, Eastern Essentials had that came with Magnesium/Glycinate/Lysate. There is a free video on the site you can check out. It was tremendous in my healing.

The Magnesium he sells is the one I took and I can vouch for it's effectiveness. But check out the video. He goes into how anxiety depletes magnesium levels which causes more anxiety. http://www.easternessentials.com/sto...laxed-formula/

I've started taking Magnesium Glycinate Chelate the other week and I can tell it is a much better sleep aid than what I was taking previously--which was Magnesium Oxide. Supposedly the Glycinate form has one of the highest bio-availability and absorption rates out of them all. I'm in need to experiment more with higher dosages as an anxiety-reducer. I have a question if anyone can answer--doesn't one need to compensate for a loss of another vitamin as a result of taking a lot of Magnesium? Isn't more Calcium needed if Magnesium levels are higher than normal? I'm gonna have to do more research on this.

If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead

calcium to mag ratio.. 1:2 or at the very least a 1:1 calcium-magnesium balance." But that's just what the last article I read says, you can check it out for yourself (link below)


I am going to order bulk powders mag glycinate they have a pretty good deal with a lot of reviews on amazon. Most people take it before bed and get good sleep which I feel its a big problem with people who have anxiety. Which often worsens your anxiety the next day.... I'm also adding a good multi

Thank you guys for the lovely discussion.
I find it very funny that more doctors aren’t clued in to the benefits of magnesium, because we use it all the time in conventional medicine. But we never stop to think about why or how important it is to our general health or why it helps our bodies function better.
I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room. It was a critical “medication” on the crash cart. .
This critical mineral is actually responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and is found in all of your tissues — but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain. You must have it for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilize membranes, and to help muscles relax.
You might be magnesium deficient if you have any of the following symptoms:
  • Muscle cramps or twitches
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Sensitivity to loud noises
  • Anxiety
  • Austins
  • ADD
  • Palpitations
  • Angina
  • Trouble swallowing etc
Magnesium deficiency has even has been linked to inflamation in the body and higher CRP levels.

Just Started taking magnesium.

Have read if you drink lots of soda or alcohol then this increases the chances of being deficient.

It definitely works. At least for me. Though it is hard to rate how effective it is. It is more of a subtle feeling of calmness and often my heart rate goes down a bit too. I think 500 mg is a pretty good dose and I usually take it on such a time in the day so it is right before I have to do something I find anxiety inducing. Combined with the medications I'm on it adds to the calmness.

Make sure you dont take magnesium if you are on blood pressure meds as it will decrease your heart rate more

If one doesn't take very large doses it shouldn't be a problem.
I use propranolol and typical HR for me before bedtime is around 57-60, a few beats lower if I've taken magnesium previously. And I probably take around 150% RDI or so including what I get from food.

57-60 is pretty low though. do you exercise a lot?

I tried magnesium. It didn't make me magnetic. It did give me a strange buzz for a few hours. That might have been from being shut up so tight in a small room for a week though.

Yeah lately I've been exercising more. It has in fact increased my heart rate. When I was more out of shape it used to be around 50 before bedtime. Strange isn't it?

I've been reading that magnesium helps relax your body as well as relieves muscle cramps and promotes muscle hydration. Not sure what it means for overall depression treatment or anxiety. I suppose if your body is more relaxed, that helps the mind as well? I also read that magnesium helps promote over 300 types of chemical reactions in the body, so if you are going to be using magnesium, make sure you speak to a pharmacist first.
